    This was posted not so long ago, but can't remember by who. I would stick with externally mounted lights, mine are going in the pergola

    Pros
    Look really good


    Cons
    Constant cleaning
    Pain to change the bulbs
    Expensive to buy a good unit
    Tricky to fiberglass if recessed
    More liable to leak
    If they stick out then they are a danger to fish

    I would agree with Roy, keep them out of the water much less hassle for maintenance etc.

    Just make sure you protect the circuit with an RCD or RCBO if it's not already got one.
